Chem Chem Lodge is situated within a privileged concession between Tarangire National Park and Lake Manyara known as the Burunge Wildlife Management Area. This place evokes the spirit of a vintage safari. Chem Chem concession is a wildlife lover’s dream – the perfect place to connect with an authentic Tanzania wilderness experience.

This extraordinary location offers captivating views of the Rift Valley’s escarpment and the ancient baobab landscape of Tarangire. The bronzed savannah and lush greenery hosts herds of elephant, wildebeest, zebras, buffalo, impalas, gazelles and other mammals. The serenity of Lake Manyara lies to the east, home of over 400 species of birdlife including elegant flamingos.

We love this lodge and put many guests through here. The lodge is a perfect place to begin a Northern circuit Tanzania safari before heading into the Serengeti. The experience is beautiful, private, and high end from start to finish.
